In this edition of The Spotlight Series we get to know Ms Taylah Hart, our First Aid Administrator. Taylah has been at Kolbe since 2022 in our First Aid facility.
What is your role at Kolbe?
College Nurse/First Aid
What does a typical day at Kolbe look like for you?
My role at Kolbe doesn't foster a typical day, every day is different. Some days are filled with injury and chaos, others are slow and steady. I love it either way. My general tasks for the day can vary from ensuring all our staff and students are well and cared for, providing First Aid and a safe space to rest, and let out their emotions if needed. On the days where accidents and injury are at a minimum, I find myself completing admin tasks such as: making sure all students/staff with a medical condition have the required documentation circulated to ensure their safety and well-being is a priority; keeping track of off-site activities; ensuring all medical equipment and medications accompany staff and students; ensuring all First Aid materials, AED's, EpiPens, Asthma Kits are in date and located around the College ready for quick retrieval in case of an emergency.
What do you love most about working at Kolbe Catholic College?
What I love most about working at Kolbe is having the ability to provide kindness, compassion and care to all our students, building rapport with our students, watching them build resilience in times of pain and distress and always showing appreciation and gratitude for the care being provided to them.
